Abstract
The study examines developments in land forces weapon technology with an attempt to appreciate the impact on future limited conventional war in Europe. It would appear that concepts of mobility and concentration will undergo increasing problems, and that emphasis might shift to a more static battlefield with precision guided munitions (PGM's) neutralizing each other and victory being more dependant on large ready reserve forces, volume fire rather than quality and precision, and a form of relatively static prepared defence. The advanced sensor technology coupled with a highly lethal defensive "firewall" may facilitate a stronger defence against offensive operations.
